Master of Business Administration (Executive)

Australian Catholic University (ACU)

This program is designed to accommodate professionals who may need to balance the competing pressures of family, work and lifestyle. It is offered in intensive mode, with each unit delivered over two weekends. Units are taught individually over twelve Professional Terms. The program is generalist in focus, with units covering the managing of money, people, knowledge, markets and strategy. The learning experience is designed to strengthen managerial ability and aids the move from management to executive responsibility. It includes the latest theory and practical knowledge, but is also built on reflection on experience. The aim of the program is to take students on a journey through the challenges and possibilities of modern business theories and practices. Students will be assessed on their understanding of concepts and processes and ability to apply them innovatively and ethically to real-world issues. There are three capstone components: Strategic Management for Sustainability, Ethical Leadership and Social Responsibility and the International Study Tour or the International Business Environment unit. The study tour provides essential research driven learning. Students will complete assessment items which require them to critically reflect upon information that they have gathered in preparation for their visits.
